So, whether you are sitting at home on the couch, or on the bus trying to drown out the sound of crying children, there’s a whole world of games to keep you entertained. Now more than ever, online connectivity is a mainstay of the games we are playing, be it for socialising in game or competing against each other.
Websites like Facebook are a treasure trove for the social gamer, with everything from Candy Crush to Tetris, and Texas Hold ‘Em poker available to play. The upshot of these socially-integrated games is their accessibility, and how easy they make it to play with your friends.
